Bodysnatcher Scott Askham books liver transplant for Mamed Khalidov ahead of KSW 52

Recommended Posts

KSW middleweight champion Scott Askham is as down-to-earth as they come. The Yorkshire-based Brit has always been confident in his abilities, but has stayed modest and respectful throughout his career as he fought his way into the UFC, then to the KSW middleweight title.

But now, ahead of arguably the biggest fight of his career, Askham has decided to engage in a little psychological warfare.

Askham is set to take on returning KSW legend Mamed Khalidov in the non-title main event of KSW 52 in Gliwice, Poland, on Dec. 7. And, just a few days out from the matchup, he headed to the local hospital to ensure all of the medical arrangements were in place – not for him, but for his opponent.

In the video above, posted by KSW, Askham asks if he can book Khalidov in for a liver transplant immediately after their matchup. The choice of operation is no accident. Askham has finished all three of his opponents in KSW by knockout, with the first two coming by way of thumping body-kicks. His ability to locate his opponents’ liver with his left leg has made him KSW’s resident middleweight bodysnatcher, and he clearly fancies his chances of completing a body-kick KO hat-trick against Khalidov.

The matchup pits newly-crowned middleweight champ Askham with the returning former 185-pound king Khalidov in arguably the biggest European middleweight fight this year.

And with Askham clearly far from overawed at the prospect of facing one of the most dominant fighters in KSW history, their matchup should make for must-see TV on Dec. 7.
